For David Goggins, childhood was a nightmare - poverty, prejudice, and physical abuse colored his days and haunted his nights. But through self-discipline, mental toughness, and hard work, Goggins transformed himself from a depressed, overweight young man with no future into a U.S. Armed Forces icon and one of the world's top endurance athletes. The only man in history to complete elite training as a Navy SEAL, Army Ranger, and Air Force Tactical Air Controller, he went on to set records in numerous endurance events, inspiring Outside magazine to name him The Fittest (Real) Man in America.

In Can't Hurt Me, he shares his astonishing life story and reveals that most of us tap into only 40% of our capabilities. Goggins calls this The 40% Rule, and his story illuminates a path that anyone can follow to push past pain, demolish fear, and reach their full potential.


  • Outstanding read!

    By M. Blocker
    Phenomenal book. I’m so glad I read it. David Goggins is exceptional and I hope I’m able to have a glimpse of his mental strength someday.
  • Title fits perfect with the message.

    By ArtyChiefEsco
    What an amazing book! Was eagerly seeking some sort of motivation to get back to working out and be as physically fit as I was while serving in the United States Marine Corps. This book has done just that! Will definitely read this book again for the added motivation. As I continue to progress and better myself, the question “what if?” Will continue to fuel my progress. Amazing work, and definitely recommend this book for anyone looking for motivation or just simply a good read!
  • WHOA!

    By Joey Sankows
    This has to be one of the best books I’ve ever read! While a lot of them are great, many books on the subject of self-improvement only push the positive viewpoint of things, which is effective in its own way, this book pushes you to confront the challenges and disappointments that always rear their ugly heads whenever one tries to make positive strides in their life with confidence and grit. Another effective factor of this book is how David Goggins uses his own detailed experiences to drive the points home and show the reader that they can push through it too. 10/10 is not good enough for this book. I’ll have to give it a 100/100 and will read it again in the future. I hope I have the blessing to meet David Goggins one day.
